Acute Infectious Disease

Acute Infection


Presentation

  • Thus, the present data indicate that these illnesses in themselves may bring about isometric muscle strength reduction.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract A diverse range of infectious diseases has presented with acute renal failure (ARF) in the West of Scotland in the past five years.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The present study was designed to assess the relationship between the prescriber's instructions and the patient's adherence to a prescribed schedule of twice-daily doses of antibiotic for at least 5 days to treat an infectious disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Therefore, the authors of the present study reanalyzed the data using several nonparametric statistical methods: Wilcoxon signed rank, Friedman, and Kruskal-Wallis tests.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abnormal physical findings were usually present. Evidence of congestive heart failure was uncommon. A group of patients subjected to artificial fever therapy did not manifest similar abnormalities. Footnotes[circ.ahajournals.org]
Fever
  • Among the factors which may cause myocarditis are direct invasion by an organism, the toxic products of an organism, hypersensitivity to the products of an organism, drugs used in therapy, deficiency in nutrients, electrolyte imbalance, and, rarely, fever[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Recordings were performed after subsidence of fever, and 1, and 4 months thereafter. A control group of twenty-two healthy men, confined to bed for the same period of time as the patients, were investigated at the same time intervals.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Recordings were performed after abatement of fever, and 1, and 4 months thereafter. Control measurements took place 1 year later. As a result of the illness the subjects' endurance capacity was reduced to 82.5-86.9% of the control values.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A man died from an acute infectious disease accompanied by fever, jaundice, haemorrhagic rash on the skin and mucous membranes as well as by acute renal insufficiency.[med-test.in.ua]
  • The cytokines produced early in infection lead to classical symptoms of an acute infection: aches, pains, fever, malaise, and nausea.[virology.ws]
Malaise
  • The cytokines produced early in infection lead to classical symptoms of an acute infection: aches, pains, fever, malaise, and nausea.[virology.ws]
Chills
  • It starts with a prodromal period of chills, sweats, and malaise that proceeds to involve sore throat, fever, and generalized lymphadenopathy. Unlike strep throat, however, infectious mononucleosis can be associated with generalized lymphadenopathy.[infectiousdiseaseadvisor.com]

Treatment

  • Full recovery is possible provided the specific diagnosis is made early and treatment with temporary renal support is combined with effective antimicrobial therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Their results, which used rudimentary statistical analyses, are still cited as evidence that osteopathic manipulative treatment augments immunity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A 2009 systematic review examined 13 studies examining vitamin D for treatment or prevention of infectious diseases in humans.[mpkb.org]
  • The majority of patients with chronic diseases were under treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory or immune-modulating medication. We cannot exclude that NAMPT levels were altered by this treatment.[journals.plos.org]
  • We recorded demographic, epidemiological, clinical, laboratory, microbiological, neuroimaging, treatment and outcome data. Biological specimens (acute and convalescent sera), CSF, saliva, stool, urine and oropharyngeal swabs were collected.[neurology.org]

Prognosis

  • What should you tell the family about the patient's prognosis? Pharyngitis, which usually presents with sore throat, is a very common self-limiting condition in otherwise healthy patients.[infectiousdiseaseadvisor.com]

Etiology

  • ; 6 had non-infectious etiologies.[neurology.org]
  • ICD-10-CM Codes › Use Additional Use Additional Help Certain conditions have both an underlying etiology and multiple body system manifestations due to the underlying etiology.[icd10data.com]

Epidemiology

  • […] the regional figures with the national mean using official notification data provided by the National Infectious Diseases Notification System (SIMI) and the National Institute of Statistics (ISTAT), in order to provide additional information about the epidemiology[eurosurveillance.org]
  • BACKGROUND In Asia and world-wide, the epidemiology and etiology of AIND remain largely unknown. The reasons include limitations in current diagnostics, difficulty in obtaining appropriate biological specimens and varying case definitions.[neurology.org]
  • The preliminary descriptive analyses of the incidence of infections among TEDDY participants younger than 4 years fits well with general knowledge of infectious disease epidemiology.[lup.lub.lu.se]
  • The perspectives of eco-epidemiology pose crucial questions for historians to reconsider about how to interpret the epidemiological evidence of the dramatically changing health patterns we have been living through for the last three centuries.[boydellandbrewer.com]
  • The Acute Disease Epidemiology Section houses several infectious disease-specific Surveillance Teams.[dph.georgia.gov]

Prevention

  • Author information 1 a Institute of Sports and Preventive Medicine , Saarland University , Saarbrücken , Germany. Abstract Acute infectious diseases are common in athletes and can impair their ability to train and to compete.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • They replicate sufficiently to ensure spread to new hosts, but not enough to damage the host and prevent transmission. Acute infections begin with an incubation period, during which the genomes replicate and the host innate responses are initiated.[virology.ws]
  • A 2009 systematic review examined 13 studies examining vitamin D for treatment or prevention of infectious diseases in humans.[mpkb.org]
  • This enables the Oklahoma State Department of Health to evaluate and target our control, education, and prevention efforts across Oklahoma.[ok.gov]
  • The mission of our Care to Prevent (C2P) program is to eliminate new infections of HIV/STI among young people living in Chicago.[pediatrics.uchicago.edu]
